Easy to find, right next to the Elks Lodge so there was plenty of parking. We saw 5 different bulls and a couple dozen cows with this year's calves. If you like wildlife this is a must see.

While we didn't find or see any elk, we did enjoy the scenic walk. The walkway through the park made it easy to walk as did the maps help us determine how far we had gone. The trees were beautiful. We also enjoyed watching the various birds and small chipmunks at play.

Nice for family's with children, elk are fenced and don't seem to mind people talking and taking pictures. Not really like seeing them in the wild. Like watching a herd of cows.

When we arrived the elk were close to the fence and we got a great view of these massive animals. I could have watched them for a long time. They had some elk that were lighter in color and smaller which may be just young. Fascinating to just sit and watch. Only thing is that there are apartments facing the elk that share the parking space and I felt intrusive sitting there.

This is a large (many acres) park where there are elk of all sizes to see. They come right up to the fence so you can get a close-up view. You drive within 100 feet of the fence, and can actually sit in you car to observe the animals. Kids and adults all will enjoy this.
